Feels so refreshing to have WebPirate back - best SFOS browser ever! A few improvements e.g. some more privacy settings and if you could add more search engines like Startpage etc. Also, I miss a back button like in Webcat. Otherwise this is a great so far and looking forward to donate your project!

Hello, I am glad you like it :) if you wanna include more search enginges, name them, that should not be problem I believe. BTW back button is there, but it is hidden by gesture. I have actually had the same question at Dax's package back then :D When you are the page, on navigation bar they are two gestures you can use, just swipe to left for forward, or swipe to right (your case) to backward on the page :) About the donation, I did not even try to manage anything yet, but I will look into it.

First, thanks you a lot for keep alive this amazing project, just wanted to ask a small improvement that make it simple perfect, the proxy configuration allows just configure HTTP proxy, but TOR uses SOCKS proxy, then the browser is incompatible with TOR, please, thinking in the pirates who are living in countries like Iran, make able the browser to connect with TOR. Thanks again !

Hello, can you please navigate me little bit more onto it? best, example where it is already working? I will try but no promise

Thanks Bobsikus! Well, I have install the daemon TOR, you can find the rpm package here, in openrepos, then, I use Webcat, in Webcat you go to configuration and then proxy and you find normal http proxy and TOR proxy. they have TOR proxy separately because TOR uses SOCKS protocol that is incompatible with the normal http proxies , actually if you try with PirateWeb to configure TOR like you get a compatibility error.
Man, thanks a lot for trying , I hope you good luck because if you success this browser is going a be real pirate!
